TO  THE  LISTENER 

VALERIE  VANISLER,  GENERAL  MANAGER 

THE  JUSTIFICATION  AND  THE  PURPOSE 
OF  FREEDOM  OF  SPEECH  IS  NOT  TO 
INDULGE  THOSE  WHO  JUST  WANT  TO 
SPEAK  THEIR  MINDS,  IT  IS  TO  PREVENT 
ERROR  AND  DISCOVER  TRUTH. 

H.  S.  COMMANGER 

Many  thanks  to  all  our  listeners  who  helped 
WBAI  make  our  Spring  Membership  Drive  goal  of 
$702,000.  This  was  a  real  challenge  and  a  very 
tough  drive.  Although  we  still  have  an  income 
shortfall  for  this  fiscal  year,  this  critical  drive  is  now 
over  and  we  urge  you  to  make  good  on  your  com- 
mitment and  send  in  your  pledge  payment  as  soon 
as  possible.  We  extend  a  very  special  welcome  to  all 
the  new  members  who  joined  the  station  during  this 
campaign  and  promise  you  a  year  of  thoughtful, 
innovative  and  exciting  programming.  You  will  dis- 
cover a  world  of  difference  as  a  member  of  the  sta- 
tion through  our  news,  public  affairs  and  cultural 
programming. 

This  is  a  time  for  the  celebration  of  our  his- 
tory and  a  time  of  new  beginnings.  All  the  Pacifica 
stations  are  now  working  on  strategic  plans  as  a 
vision  for  our  future  and  as  part  of  the  Foundation 
effort  to  insure  our  survival  into  the  21st  Century. 
Planning  for  the  50th  Anniversary  Campaign  began 
about  a  year  ago  and  provides  the  framework  for 
fund-raising  plans  that  will  celebrate  half-a-century 
of  extraordinary  programming  and  community  ser- 
vice by  our  stations  to  literally  millions  of  people  in 
our  signal  areas  and  across  the  country  during  these 
five  decades  of  broadcasting.  We  need  to  continue 
our  work  of  finding  WBAI  a  new  home  and  this  is 
at  the  heart  of  our  strategic  plan.  We  want  WBAI  to 
be  in  the  forefront  of  this  celebration  of  excellence 
since  our  history  is  filled  with  award-winning  pro- 
grams and  broadcast  which  were  unique  in  both  the 
public  and  corporate  media  worid  As  these  plans 
develop,  we  will  provide  information  and  updates  to 
you  in  the  Folio. 

And  we  are  also  proud  to  announce  some 
new  award  winners  from  WBAI  in  addition  to  the 
six  major  programming  prizes  which  the  station 
won  at  the  spring  conference  of  the  National 


Federation  of  Community  Broadcaster  highlighted 
in  the  last  program  guide  The  Personal  Computer 
Show  has  just  been  voted  the  best  radio  program  for 
1996  by  th  e  Computer  Press  Association— taking 
top  honors  again  this  year.  Peter  Bochan  won  the 
bronze  award  from  the  New  York  Festival  for  his 
wonderful  All  Mixed  Up-Short  Cuts  1996,  And  a 
program  produced  by  a  former  member  of  our  news 
room,  Alan  Lipke,  who  asked  for  our  assistance  in 
making  the  Rosewood  Reborn  documentary  has  just 
received  the  National  Edward  P.  Murrow  Award  for 
best  news  documentary  in  radio  and  the  Grand 
Award  from  the  New  York  Festivals  All  these  hon- 
ors are  evidence  of  the  extraordinary  programming 
that  WBAI  continues  to  produce  with  your  support. 

As  you  will  see  highlighted  in  this  guide, 
WBAI  will  be  having  a  Summer  Fund  Drive  in  eariy 
August  from  Monday  the  4th-Friday  the  8th  to  help 
us  make  up  the  short  fall  and  end  the  year  on  bud- 
get. These  special  days  will  feature  programs  on  the 
Hollywood  Blacklist,  the  US  COINTELPRO  pro- 
ject, the  Atomic  Bomb  and  the  Nuclear  Era,  and 
Emancipation-Liberation  in  the  19th-20th  centuries 
Other  programs  will  focus  on  music  and  cultural 
issues  during  this  mini-thon.  The  report  to  the  listen- 
er programs  will  be  broadcast  in  the  mornings  on 
July  3  and  August  1  and  will  be  regularly  scheduled 
throughout  the  program  year.  Again,  thank  you  for 
your  generous  and  continuing  support  which  allows 
this  community  station  to  remain  faithful  to  our  mis- 
sion of  service  and  our  message  of  peace.

SUMMER 


FUND  DRIVE 

AUGUST  4-8  1997 

During  the  week  of  August  4-8th,  WBAI  will  pre- 
sent some  of  the  most  outstanding  programs  in  all  of 
community  radio,  as  we  mark  three  epochal 
anniversaries:  the  era  of  the  atomic  bomb;  the  30th 
anniversary  of  COINTELPRO  and  the  worldwide 
struggle  against  (British  and  world)  chattel  slavery. 

Monday  August  4  A  history  and  operations  of  the 
Counter  Intelligence  Program  (COINTELPRO) 

This  program  will  examine  the  roles  of  the  FBI  and 
the  US  Justice  Department  in  its  operations  against 
the  Native  American,  African-American  and 
Latino  communities  in  the  1960's  and  early  '70's. 
Several  former  FBI  and  other  former  government 
agencies  will  be  featured  as  part  of  several  docu- 
mentaries and  talks  on  these  historic  events. 

"Blacklist"  A  study  of  the  government  and  Holly- 
wood authorities'  blacklisting  thousands  of  enter- 
tainers and  their  relatives—primarily  because  of  their 
alleged  involment  in  "communisf  and  "anti  - 
American"  activities.  Many  of  these  victims  and 
their  offspring  are  still  suffering  the  consequences 
of  the  American  government's  treatment  of  its  own 
citizens.  A  special  interview  with  actor,  Robert 
Vaughn,  author  of  Only  Victims  and  accounts  from 
a  number  of  Hollywood  writers,  directors  and  actors 
will  be  part  of  this  special. 

Tuesday  August  5  "Christianity,  Capitalism, 
Slavery  and  the  British/American  Empire" 

Sixteen  decades  since  emancipation  in  the  British 
colonies,  this  program  will  examine  the  profundity 
of  British  colonialism  and  its  impact  on  shaping  US 
culture  and  politics— particularly  in  relation  to  the 
primary  victims  of  the  slave  trade.  The  program  will 
feature  Dr.  Walter  Rodney,  C.L.R.  James, 
Michael  Manley,  Ivan  Van  Sertima,  Norman 
Davies  and  others. 


Wednesday  August  6  In  this  the  52nd  year  since 
the  US  dropped  the  atomic  bomb  on  Japan  WHAI 
will  look  squarely  at  the  pervasive  threat  of  the 
nuclear  industry  to  every  citizen  on  this  planet  This 
program  will  also  look  at  the  political  economy  of 
nuclear  power  and  at  the  use  of  radiation  in  US 
medicinal  practices  Dr.  Michio  Kaku,  Dr.  Helen 
Caldicott  and  Dr.  Jay  Gould  will  all  be  part  of  this 
special. 

Thursday  August  7  "Elvis  Presley  in  Black?"  If 

you've  ever  wondered,  try  listening  to  this  riveting 
documentary  on  Elvis  Presley,  "King"  of  rock'n 
roll  and  the  theft  of  intellectual  property  Produced 
by  Dred  Scott  Keyes  and  The  Midnight  Ravers. 

Friday  August  8  "Blood  and  Meat"  Your  blood  is 
what  you  eat.  Eat  this  stuff.  Then  check  your  blood.

MEMORIAL  CONFERENCE  AND  RALLY  AGAINST  GOVERNMENT 

SANCTIONED  VIOLENCE  AND  HATE 

JULY  18,  19&20,  1997 
SPARTANBURG,  SOUTH  CAROLINA 


(212)252-4916 


LYNCH  -  To  put  to  death  (as  by  hanging) 
LYNCH  LA  W  -  Punishment  of  persons,  without  legal 
sanction,  usually  by  death,  without  due  process  of 
taw. 

Three  fifths  of  a  man''  Today,  it  seems  that  the 
value  placed  on  the  life  of  African  Americans,  espe- 
cially young  men,  is  even  less  than  that  horrible 
measure. 

On  July  20,  1995,  Douglas  Fischer,  a  25  year  old 
African-American  college  student,  was  brutally 
killed  in  Spartanburg,  South  Carolina,  by  employees 
of  Best  Buy,  an  electronics  chain  store. 

Douglas,  accused  of  using  a  fraudulent  credit  card, 
ran  when  he  was  confronted  by  store  security,  and 
was  violently  pursued  by  4  store  employees  who 
chased  him  down,  caught  and  put  him  into  an  illegal 
choke  hold  and  strangled  him  to  death.  Strangling 
and  asphyxiation  is  not  what  you  see  on  television; 
it  takes  over  three  minutes  with  massive  pressure  to 
kill  someone  by  strangulation  Eyewitness  accounts 
say  that  Douglas  was  choked  for  four  minutes,  with 
one  security  guard  holding  him  in  a  headlock  and 
choking  him,  and  another  sitting  on  his  back. 

"  There  was  no  reason  to  choke  him.  They  had  him 
on  his  back  with  his  hands  behind  his  back  but  [he] 
kept  choking  him.  It  was  ridiculous.  Fischer  was 
spilling  up  blood  and  choking,  it  was  obvious  he 
couldn  i  breathe.  "  The  guard  said  "Quit  fighting  or 
I  'II  break  your  fuckmg  neck.  "  "There  was  a  con- 
struction worker  standing  next  to  me.  He  told  me 
'They  're  going  to  kill  him. ' "  After  Fischer  stopped 
moving,  the  construction  worker  walked  over  and 
checked  Fischer 's  pulse.  "He  's  dead,  "  he  said  and 
he  walked  off.  He  drove  back  by  in  his  pickup  and 
warned,  "You'd  better  start  resuscitation  now  or 
you  're  going  to  have  one  hell  of  a  lawsuit.  " 
"They  flipped  Fischer  over  so  hard  that  I  felt  his 
head  hit  the  ground  15  feet  away.  " 


Calls  placed  to  the  Spartanburg  91 1  Operator,  as 
well  as  other  eyewitness  accounts,  provide  a  chilling 
chronology  of  the  depraved  manner  in  which 
Douglas  was  murdered    At  one  point,  David 
Shomo,  the  Best  Buy  store  manager,  told  the  91 1 
Operator  that  he  was  all  right  "Right  now  he's  just 
kind  of  lying,  being  nice  for  us."  Douglas  lay  life- 
less for  over  ten  minutes  before  any  attempt  was 
made  to  resuscitate  him  Douglas  was  pronounced 
dead  at  Spartanburg  Regional  Hospital  at  401  p  m., 
one  hour  after  the  first  call  to  91 1 . 

Douglas'  death  was  ruled  a  homicide,  and  that,  only 
after  pressure  from  his  family.  The  county  coroner, 
Jim  Burnett,  said  that  he  didn't  "see  any  basis  for 
any  legal  charges  or  criminal  charges  against  the 
employees  of  Best  Buy."  Douglas,  he  said  "was 
responsible  for  his  own  death.  It's  almost  like  to  me 
if  a  man  is  drunk  and  runs  into  a  tree  and  tries  to 
blame  the  person  who  planted  the  tree  for  causing 
his  injuries."  Burnett  concluded  that  Douglas'  death 
was  caused  by  a  preexisting  heart  condition,  that 
Douglas'  heart  stopped  beating  because  of  hypoxia 
(lack  of  oxygen)  that  was  precipitated  by  an  adrena- 
line surge  due  to  exertion  The  results  of  an  inde- 
pendent autopsy  contradicted  Burnett's  findings  and 
attributed  Douglas'  death  to  asphyxiation. 

At  a  recent  conference  on  police  brutality  in  New 
York  City,  the  ten-year-old  sister  of  Douglas  Fischer 
wanted  to  know  why  her  brother  was  murdered  "for 
no  reason  and  why  nobody  did  anything  about  it." 
She  wanted  answers  and  she  proposed  that  we  hold 
a  "sit-in  or  something"  to  demand  answers  and  jus- 
tice for  her  brother. 

To  this  end,  you  are  invited  to  participate  in  a 
memorial  conference  and  rally  for  Douglas 
Fischer  and  to  demonstrate  against  the  climate  of 
hate  in  the  Spartanburg  area  and  in  the  state  of 
South  Carolina  on  July  18, 19  &  20, 1997. 


The  state  of  South  Carolina  can  be  aptly  called  the 
new  Confederacy,  where  it  is  open  season  on  any- 
one who  doesn't  share  the  Confederate,  white- 
supremacist,  fundamentalist  Christian  views  of  its 
business,  social  and  political  leaders.  The  following 
are  examples  of  this  ideology: 

*The  Confederate  flag  flies  over  the  state 

capitol  building; 
*More  African-American  and  multiracial 

churches  have  been  burned  in  South 

Carolina  than  any  other  state; 
*Laurens,  South  Carolina  is  the  home  of  the 

KKK's  museum  and  gift  shop; 
*A  sheriff  in  South  Carolina  put  out  a  want 

ed  poster  on  an  African-American  man 

offering  $100  for  his  capture  alive  and 

$500  for  him  dead.  When  people  protested, 

he  said  that  Black  people  have  no  sense  of 

humor; 
*A  bill  putting  an  end  to  affirmative  action 

is  due  for  passage  in  the  state  legislature. 

To  fight  these  kinds  of  racist,  state-sanctioned  poli- 
cies, the  friends  and  family  of  Douglas  Fischer,  as 
The  Douglas  Fischer  Justice  Project,  as  well  as  The 
Center  for  Constitutional  Rights,  The  Center  for 
Democratic  Renewal,  WBAI  Radio,  and  the  South 
Carolina  Progressive  Network  and  other  grassroots 
organizations  are  sponsoring  this  memorial  confer- 
ence. 

We  cannotand  will  not  allow  our  children  to  be 
murdered  with  impunity. 

On  Friday,  July  18,  the  conference  will  begin  with  a 
keynote  address  and  plenary  session  at  the  Corner- 
stone Baptist  Church  in  Spartanburg,  South  Caro- 
lina, which  Rev.  B.T.  Sears  has  generously  provided 
for  our  use,  with  many  local  people  from  the  area. 

On  Saturday,  July  19,  some  of  the  speakers  will 
include  Ron  Hampton,  Executive  Director  of  the 
National  Black  Police  Association  and  Mary  Powers 
of  the  National  Coalition  on  Police  Accountability, 
who  will  convene  a  people's  grand  jury,  take  per- 
sonal testimonies  and  gather  evidence  to  submit  to 
the  Justice  Department,  and,  if  necessary,  to  an 
international  tribunal;  Al  McSurely,  a  Civil  Rights 
attorney  from  Chapel  Hill,  North  Carolina,  will 
address  racism  in  the  justice  system  and  the  uneven 
application  of  the  law,  paying  attention  to  whether 
or  not  the  slave  codes  of  pre-emancipation  are  still 
being  applied  today.  Workshops  will  be  held  to 


develop  creative  and  effective  strategies  to  combat 
tactics  being  used  to  disempower  African-American 
communities.  There  will  then  be  a  rally  at  Best  Buy, 
the  site  where  Douglas  was  killed  On  Sunday,  July 
20,  on  the  second  anniversary  of  Douglas'  death, 
participants  are  invited  to  attend  a  memorial  service. 

We  need  you  to  participate,  to  either  come  and  join 
us  or  provide  sponsor  support.  This  conference  has 
been  organized  with  no  financial  resources,  and  we 
can  only  go  so  far.  If  the  necessary  financial  support 
can  be  raised  to  provide  her  transportation,  Mamie 
Till  Mobley  has  agreed  to  deliver  or  keynote 
address.  Rev.  Leo  Woodbury  of  Florence,  SC,  has 
said  that  he  knows  400  willing  participants  if  funds 
for  transportation  can  be  provided.  This  has  the 
potential  to  be  a  very  effective  conference,  focusing 
national  attention  on  the  extreme  climate  of  intoler- 
ance existing  in  South  Carolina  and  other  parts  of 
the  United  States. 

If  you  would  like  to  participate,  please  call  (212) 
252-4916,  and,  if  you  can't  come,  please  make  a 
contribution  and  help  sponsor  someone  who  can.

SANTIAGO  NIEVES  MOVES  FROM 
FRIDA  Y  TALK  BACK  TO  HOST  FRIDA  Y 
WAKE-  UP  CALL  ON  FRIDAY 

Back  in  1976  Santiago  Nieves,  a  Puerto 
Rican  journalist  wanted  to  do  something  about  the 
invisibility  and  or  negative  stereotyping  of  Latinos 
in  the  media  Today,  Santiago's  creation,  "Latino 
Journal",  which  airs  right  here  over  WBAL  is 
radio's  longest-running  Latino  progressive  radio 
news  and  commentary  program  of  its'  kind 

Since  '76,  Santiago  Nieves  has  grown  to 
become  one  of  WBAI's  most  prolific  radio  produc- 
er, anchor,  who  continues  to  bring  your  program- 
ming that  is  socially-conscious,  thought-provoking, 
often  controversial  and  provocative,  consistently 
irreverent,  and  always  entertaining.  He  is  a  veteran 
in  public  affairs,  news,  arts  programming  and  an

(1900-96)  gave  voice  to  people  at  the  bottom  of 
society  who  left  few  records  and  had  little  written 
about  them:  farmers,  laborers,  poor  women,  people 
of  colo,  the  hungry,  the  dispossessed.  For  her  efforts 
she  was  on  the  receiving  end  of  the  blacklist  of  the 
'50s,  but  in  the  ensuing  years  generations  of 
activists,  feminists  and  popular  historians  found  hers 
to  be  a  voice  both  of  and  ahead  of  her  time.

Dear  Radio  Bandung: 

I  have  been  meaning  to  send  you  a  letter  for 
the  longest  time  as  I  have  recommended  your  pro- 
gram to  so  many  people.  Your  program  [this] 
Saturday,  May  10th  once  again  demonstrated  that 
you  have  more  integrity  and  levelheadedness  than 
possibly  any  other  producers  on  the  station.  I  thor- 
oughly appreciated  the  way  in  which  you  conducted 
your  show  as  well  as  your  insistence  that  people 
iook  at  the  issue  of  the  prevention  and  basic  silenc- 
ing of  debate  that  has  been  occuring  around  ///Fand 
AIDS  Everyone  can  see  it  in  all  other  areas  and  can 
quote  Noam  Chomsky  over  and  over  again  except 
when  it  comes  to  this  one  topic.  This  is  very  serious 
and  points  the  way  to  how  so  many  basically  decent 
people  [can]  have  been  drawn  into  cooperating  in 
the  various  fascist  takeovers  that  have  been  accom- 
plished in  this  century.  Hitler  was  right,  a  lie  told 
often  enough  becomes  accepted  as  the  truth.  And  no 
matter  how  persons  like  Chomsky  and  others  may 
proclaim  it,  they  can  become  subject  to  the  very 
same  thing  themselves  and  be  unable  to  examine  it. 
Counter  examples  come  to  mind  of  programs  that 
have  been  on  WBAI  of  the  turn  around  by  people 
who  have  been  high  members  of  the  Klan  or  deeply 
anti  white  African  Americans.  These  extraordinary 
occurences  need  to  be  studied  more,  for  these  per- 
sons have  been  able  or  enabled  by  some  experience 
to  come  to  actually  examine  the  other  side  and 
choose  it  when  they  have  seen  a  difference  that 
makes  a  difference. 

Thanks  for  all  you  do  in  keeping  this  prima- 
ry issue  before  us,  i.e.  the  colonization  of  thought  by 
the  powerful  which  is  even  more  insidious  today 
given  the  power  of  controlled  media  and  limited 
access  for  all. 


Warmest  regards.

I  Can  No  Longer  Care  For  The  Dying 

My  muse  was  Imprisoned  once 
six  months  encased  in  stone 
outside  of  Hebron. 
She  learned  to  sleep  through  torture, 
to  smile  as  they  split  her  tongue. 

She  no  longer  throws  stones 
or  hoists  unfurled  flags. 
She  was  shipped  by  night, 
North  across  the  Dodge  River. 
North  over  the  Chouf  Mountains 
to  Byblos  by  the  sea. 

She  is  mute  by  day 

she  picks  almonds  and  olives 

for  the  greengrocer's  cart. 

Feeling  the  heft 

judging  by  weight 

estimating  the  knot 

for  Goliath's  head. 

She  follows  simple  orders  now, 

incapable  of  schemes. 

By  night,  she  crouches 

on  jutting  parapets 

older  than  her  name. 

Her  split  tongue  ululates 

a  spiral  song  to  the  moon 

pulled  from  her  throat  like  a  string, 

the  waves  cany  it  to  sea. 

/  can  no  longer  care  for  the  dying 

can  no  longer  grasp  the  hand 

awash  and  drowning 

"Throw  out  the  lifeline 

Someone  is  slipping  away" 

Can  no  longer  lose  contact, 

Feel  nails  rip  into  the  meat  of  the  palm

Union  '97  On  The  Air 

For  the  second  summer  in  a  row,  WBAI's 
Building  Bridges:  Your  Community  and  Labor 
Report  will  cover  union  organizing  across  the  coun- 
try by  focusing  on  the  activities  of  Union  Summer 
participants.  Union  Summer  is  the  AFL-CIO's 
program  to  bring  hundreds  of  workers  and  college 
students  into  the  streets  and  neighborhoods  across 
the  country  during  the  summer  months  to  work  on 
building  a  movement  in  support  of  workers  rights  to 
organize  to  improve  their  lives.  This  summer  the 
AFL-CIO  is  planning  to  involve  older  and  retired 
workers  with  the  implememtation  of  Senior 
Summer.  This  intergenerational  venture  will  com- 
bine the  idealism  and  energy  of  America's  youth 
with  the  experience  and  first-hand  knowledge  of 
retired  union  workers. 

Building  Bridges  Union  Summer  '97  On 
The  Air  specials  will  be  broadcast  July  28  and 
August  1 1  and  25.  Like  last  year's  Union  Summer 
series,  it  will  be  sent  up  on  the  satellite  to  be  made 
available  to  public  radio  stations  across  the  country. 
Last  summer,  over  30  stations  carried  Union 
Summer  on  the  Air  from  coast  to  coast.  It  will  also 
be  available  on  real  audio  on  the  Building  Bridges 
Union  Summer  web  site 
:WWW.igc.apc.org/wbai-labor/ 
Building  Bridges  Union  Summer  '97  On  The  Air

ROCK  ON 

with 
SHAWN  RHODES 


An  eclectic  and  versatile  producer,  Shawn  has  been  at 
WBAI  since  1994  and  has  been  a  part  of  77?^  Black 
Rock  Coalition  Radio  Show.  Midnight  Ravers  and 
Person  To  Person  He's  also  done  a  number  of  specials 
including  a  Smokey  Robinson  &  The  Miracles  tribute, 
an  interview  with  The  Spinners,  "Understanding  The 
Soul  Of  A  Musician"  featuring  Kenny  Loggins  and 
Dionne  Farris  and  "Musical  Porno  Stars".  For  the  past 
three  vears,  he  has  collaborated  on  the  Prince  birthday 
and  vear-end  specials  for  1995.  1996  and  1997.  'The 
Art  Of  Male  Fnendship"  and  "The  Class  of  1974 
Reunion"  special  Shawn  is  stepping  out  from  his  cur- 
rent behind-the-scenes  role  on  Weaponry  to  host  and 
produce  a  senes  of  monthly  specials  entitled  "Rock 
On"  that  will  focus  on  various  aspects  of  the  music 
industry—specifically  the  Pop/R&B  genres. 

With  these  specials,  Shawn  hopes  to  accomplish  three 
things:  To  give  those  who  are  interested  in  having  a 
career  in  any  aspect  of  the  music  industry  (whether  it 
be  in  the  spotlight  or  behind  the  scenes)  specific  infor- 
mation about  what  is  required  in  each  field,  to  provide 
those  who  may  not  be  seeking  a  music  career  an  enter- 
taining insider's  look  at  this  particular  industr>'  and  to 
encourage  dialogue  between  music  professionals  and 
the  people  who  listen  to  and  financially  support  their 
work. 

To  make  these  specials  as  listener-responsive  as  possi- 
ble, he  welcomes  suggestions  and  questions  to  be  used 
in  future  segments.  You  can  leave  messages  at  212- 
279-0707  or  write  him  at  505  8th  Ave.  Box  #10,  New 
York,N.Y.  10018. 

Shawn  is  a  singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist 
with  a  B.A  in  Music  Composition  who  has  had  a  num- 
ber of  his  pieces  played  over  WBAI  and  hopes  to  have 
a  long  and  successful  career  in  the  music  industry.

LEO  CAWLEY  RETROSPEaiVE 

Friday,  July  25  7;00  pm 

If  the  name  Leo  Cawley  is  familiar  to  you,  a  memo- 
ry may  be  called  to  mind  of  a  weekly  program  you 
much  appreciated.  In  the  six  years  since  Leo's 
death,  the  world  has  both  changed  yet  remained  fun- 
damentally the  same.  Leo's  program,  "Fearful 
Symmetry",  addressed  the  connections  among  poli- 
tics, economics,  history  and  culture.  To  those  who 
regularly  tuned  in  to  WBAI  on  Friday  evenings  to 
hear  him,  he  was  both  informative  and  entertaining 
He  made  the  complex  comprehensible  and  brought 
out  the  complexities  of  the  seemingly  simple,  not 
often  did  his  scholarly  reach  exceed  his  grasp 

An  assistant  professor  at  Georgetown  University,  he 
became  an  unintimidating  resource  to  the  members 
of  his  audience.  Having  been  a  Marine  during  the 
U.S.'s  military  involvement  in  the  affairs  of 
Vietnam,  he  finally  succumbed  to  a  cancer  probably 
caused  by  his  exposure  to  the  Agent  Orange  that  had 
been  scattered  over  that  beleaguered  country  like  so 
much  lethal  confetti. 

Tonight,  selections  from  some  of  his  programs  will 
be  aired,  with  particular  emphasis  on  the  issues  of 
this  day. 

As  this  is  written,  the  New  York  State  Senate  is  con- 
sidering the  deal  that  seems  to  have  been  reached  on 
the  question  of  rent  control  and  other  rent  regula- 
tions. The  right  of  people  to  affordable  shelter 
along  with  decent  restraints  on  landlords  is  an  issue 
that  is  to  the  fore  now,  and  was  discussed  by  Leo  in 
a  knowledgeable  way  on  more  than  one  occasion. 
An  example  of  this  will  be  heard  during  this  retro- 
spective. 

While  not  all  of  his  "oeuvre"  has  been  recorded  on 
tape,  dozens  of  those  hours  have  been.  Tonight, 
we'll  hear  analysis  of  matters  of  moment  with  a  per- 
spective not  heard  on  the  nightly  sound-bite  ver- 
sions of  the  events  of  the  day. 

Remember,  you  have  a  date  with  Leo  Cawley  for  his 
ultimate  retrospective  on  Friday.  July  25th  at  7  pm 
Don't  be  late.

l=ORCED    INDIAN    Rl 


ION 


We  urgently  seek  your  help  and  assistance  In  gaining  Immediate  Intervention  to  stop  the 
forcible  eviction  of  over  3,000  traditional  DIneh  (NavQjo)  from  their  homes  In  a  remote 
desert  region  of  northeastern  Arizona. 

In  January  1982,  Leon  Berger,  Executive  Director  of  the  Navajo-Hopi  Indian  Relocation 
Commission  resigned  saying  tliat, '  the  forcible  relocation  of  (over)  10,000  Navajo  people  is 
a  tragedy  of  genocide  and  injustice  that  will  be  a  blot  on  the  conscience  of  this  country  for 
many  generations."  In  May  1982,  Roger  Lewis,  one  of  three  Federally  appointed  Relocation 
Commissioners  resigned  saying,  "I  feel  that  in  relocating  these  elderly  people,  we  are  as 
bad  as  the  people  who  ran  ttie  concentration  camps  in  World  War  II.' 

Families  whose  only  crime  is  living  on  top  of  billions  of  tons  of  coal  are  being  given 
warrants  for  trespassing  in  their  own  homes.  Over  12.000  traditional  Dineh  (Navajo)  and 
100  Hopi  have  suffered  coerced  relocation  since  1974  when  Public  Law  93-531,  "THE 
RELOCATION  ACT"  was  passed.  No  hearing  was  ever  held.  Over  $350  million  taxpayer 
dollars  have  been  spent.  In  1996,  Senator  John  McCain  (AZ)  authored  Public  Law  104-301 
THE  NAVAJO-HOPI  LAND  DISPUTE  SETTLEMENT",  sanctioning  forced  evictions  of 
3,000  Dineh  people  who  have  resisted  relocation  despite  all  efforts  by  the  U.S.  government 
to  starve  and  freeze  them  from  their  ancestral  homeland.  For  23  years  a  US.  Court 
ordered  Bennett  Freeze  has  denied  them  the  right  to  repair  their  homes  even  in  cases  of 
medical  need.  A  ban  on  housing  construction  has  forced  20  family  members  to  live  in  a 
one  room  hogan.  They  are  denied  all  services  including  access  to  water.  US  government 
officials  have  fenced  off,  capped  off  and  dismantled  water  wells.  Livestock,  upon  which 
they  depend  upon  for  their  survival,  is  illegally  confiscated  and  abused  in  the  U.S.  Bureau  of  Indian  Affairs  (BIA)  impoundment  yard. 


THE  REAL  CRIMES: 

•  The  present  day  relocation  is  ttie  largest  Indian  removal  since 
the  1800s. 

•  Exploitation  of  the  area's  abundant  uranium  resources  has 
engendered  epidemic  rates  of  lung  cancer  among  Navajo 
uranium  miners  and  their  families. 

•  Peabody  Western  Coal  Company  (PWCC)  operates  the 
world's  largest  strip  mine  (103  sq.  miles)  and  seeks  to 
expand  operations  into  the  Dineh  homeland. 

•  Peabody  is  owned  by  Hanson  Holding  Company  of  London, 
England.  They  operate  the  Black  Mesa/Kayenta  mining 
complex  ignoring  all  laws  regulating  mining  including  con- 
ducting pre-blast  surveys. 

•  A  recent  figure  quotes  Peabody  payed  a  price  of  12<i  per  ton 
to  both  Navajo  and  Hopi  Tribal  Councils.  Peabody  sells  at 
$22  per  ton  in  the  maritetplace.  Yeariy  about  12  millions  tons 
are  mined. 

•  Surface  and  ground  water  has  been  contaminated. 

•  An  estimated  4,000  Anasazi  diff  houses  and  archeological 
sites  have  beer,  destroyed. 

•  Highly  restrictive  permit  requirements  violates  Freedom  of 
Religion.  Dineh  religion  is  land-based  and  site  specific. 

•  Burial  sites  and  sacred  sites  are  bulldozed  and  desecrated  in 
violation  of  the  Native  American  Grave  Protection  and 
Repatriation  Act. 

•  To  save  money  shipping  coal,  a  275  mile,  illegal  coal  slurry 
pipeline  pumps  over  1 .4  billion  gallons  of  scarce,  pristine 

The   US   Congress   must   conduct   Investigations   of   gross 
and   systemic   human   rights   violations   against   the   Dineh   people.

several  Hopi  villages  will  run  dry  in  three  years  at  the 
present  rate  of  usage  levels.  Others  will  follow. 

•  To  use  the  coal  from  this  area  the  largest  power  plant  in  the 
US  was  built.  The  air  pollution  created  by  the  power  plant  is 
the  greatest  single  point  source  of  greenhouse  effect  gases 
in  North  America  and  is  one  of  two  visible  manmade  effects 
seen  by  Apollo  astronauts. 

RELOCATIOK  to  the  "MEW  LAMPS": 

•  The  "New  Lands",  south  of  Sanders,  AZ  ,  the  prime  site  for 
relocatees  was  purchased  by  the  US  government  in  1980.  In 
1979,  the  "  New  Lands"  was  contaminated  by  the  nation's 
largest  radioactive  spill  (Church  Rock  Spill ),  second  to 
Chernobyl.  It  is  unfit  for  human  and  livestock  habitation. 

•  Forced  relocation  to  this  inadequately  remediated  Superfund 
site  is  in  direct  violation  of  Executive  Order  1 2898  on 
Environmental  Justice  signed  by  President  Clinton  on 
Febmary  11,  1994. 

•  Thousands  of  Dineh  people  have  died  from  relocation  effects, 
environmental  and  stress  related  illnesses  and  homelessness. 
Thousands  more  are  homeless. 

•  Threats  to  seal  off  the  reservation  to  outside  parties  and 
witnesses  endangers  the  lives  of  Dineh  people  including 
elders,  women  and  children.

THROUGH  THE  OPERA  GLASS 


Sundays  6:00-9:00am 

Executive  Producer:  Regina  Fiorito-Sokol. 

July6  Pfitzner's  Palestrina,  an  extended  hymn  to 
the  sacred  power  of  music  to  salvage  and  redeem,  is 
one  of  the  most  significant  theatre  pieces  of  the 
twentieth  century  Through  the  Opera  Glass  pre- 
views its  American  premiere  later  his  month  (eighty 
years  after  it  was  first  performed  during  World  War 
I  ! ! !)  at  Lincoln  Center  by  the  Royal  Opera,  Covent 
Garden  Host:  Anthony  Coggi 

July  13  The  conclusion  of  Palestrina  serves  as  a 
curtain-raiser  to  two  rarities  from  the  Italian  Bel 
Canto  period:  II  Pigmalione,  a  student  work  by  the 
teenaged  Donizetti  unperformed  during  the  com- 
poser's lifetime,  and  Rossini's  Adina,  the  result  of  a 
bizarre  commission,  performed  but  once  before  its 
revival  thirty  years  ago  and  never  seen  by  its  com- 
poser Host:  Anthony  Coggi. 

July  20  To  be  announced.  Host:  Many  a 

July  27  Anthony  Coggi  previews  Verdi's  La 
Battaglia  di  Legnano,  about  to  be  performed  - 
FREE-in  Central  Park  by  Vincent  La  Selva's  New 
York  Grand  Opera  company  Not  seen  hereabouts 
for  over  twenty  years,  Verdi's  celebration  of  the 
12th  century  defeat  of  Frederick  Barbarossa's 
armies  by  the  Lombard  League  was  a  thinly  dis- 
guise call-to-arms  for  Italian  patriots  to  rise  up  and 
rid  the  peninsula  of  its  Germanic  oppressors. 

Aug  3  Auber's  delightful  1835  opera-comique,_A<? 
Cheval De  Bronze,  combines  oriental  kitsch  with 
interplanetary  travel.  Host:  Anthony  Coggi 

Aug  10  To  be  announced  Host:  Manya 


Aug  24  Meyerbeer's  Les  Huguenots  which 
recounts  the  tale  of  the  St  Bartholomew'  s  Day 
Massacre  (a  sixteenth  century  example  of  "ethnic 
cleansing")  seems  an  appropriate  choice  for  this  St 
Bartholomew's  Day.  The  stellar  La  Scala  cast  of  the 
1962  revival  is  headed  by  Sutherland,  Corelli, 
Simionato,  Cossotto,  Tozzi,  Ghiaourov,  and 
Ganzarolli  under  Gavazzeni's  baton  Host:

(rpmartin@interport.net) 

Alternate  Sundays  1:00-3:00am 

July  13  Summer  is  here  and  tomorrow  is  Bastille 
Day!  In  honor  of  this  event  Little  Squishy  will  storm 
the  bastions  of  the  "Deadly  Cult  of  the  locks  Tap," 
which  consists  mostly  of  a  large  rock  under  which 
they  plot  to  take  over  and  sell  the  electromagnetic 
spectrum.  He'll  need  a  big  crowbar  because  they're 
quite  allergic  to  sunshine.  If  it's  Summer  then  that 
smell  must  be  coming  from  the  WBAI  Canteen, 
where  refrigeration  is  considered  politically  incor- 
rect and  those  who  produce  the  Bacteria  Rights  pro- 
gram dictate  the  culture.  For  a  taste  treat  on  these 
hot  days  our  French  Chef  Merde  Zut  has  prepared  a 
helping  of  his  famous  boiled  grease  sandwiches 
which  are  rated  by  both  the  Centers  for  Disease 
Control  and  the  World  Health  Organization. 

July  17  As  part  of  our  coverage  of  the  Summer 
games  (What  do  you  mean,  what  Summer  games? 
Go  along  with  it!)  Itchy  T.  Echidna  brings  us  live 
coverage  of  the  Literary  Figure  Mud  Wrestling 
Round  Robin,  as  part  of  the  video  portion  of  our 
program.  In  a  political  and  fetishistic  segment 
Hector  and  Anvil  document  the  major  liberal  contri- 
bution to  Western  Culture—the  wine  and  cheese 
party.  Their  main  focus  is  the  bane  of  these  events: 
the  guest  who  drinks  too  much  wine,  and  then  pro- 
ceeds to  go  off  in  a  corner  with  the  Camembert  to 
commit  fromage  frottage.  In  an  ambush  interview 
some  less  than  stealthy  practitioners  are  found  try- 
ing to  brush  the  blue  cheese  off  their  pants,  while  (in 
Greenwich  Village)  a  party  is  found  where  the 
Roquefort  is  openly  savaged  by  all  attendees. 

August  10  In  a  very  reverent  religious  segment 
Pope  Weaselpenis  XVI  issues  a  whole  lot  of  Papal 
Bull  on  the  recently  highly  publicized  subject  of 
cheese-sexuals  and  their  practice  of  fromage  frot- 
tage, which  he  says  used  to  be  one  of  the  sins  in  the 
TenCommandments,  "It  was  the  Third  Command- 
ment, but  then  some  other  Goddamned  thing 
bumped  it  off,"  says  the  Profiteering  pontifTjust 
before  he  condemns  the  practice  but  says  he  loves 
the  sinners  Bill  Clinton,  who  admits  he  is  consid- 
ered quite  caseous,  says  that  he  has  full  sympathy

opments in  the  area— from  Chiapas,  Guatemala 
City  to  San  Juan,  Port-au-Prince  to  Santa  Fe  de

some  of  the  sharpest  voices  from  the  region,  and

for  the  person  who  keeps  his  or  her  activities  con- 
fined the  bedroom  where  they  might  keep  an  aged 
Swiss,  but  that  he  prefers  that  they  not  flaunt  their 
lifestyle.  Jesse  Helms  (R.  Large  Intestine)  says  he 
just  flat  out  doesn't  want  them  in  the  military. 

August  24  In  less  than  one  week  your  host  will 
have  occupied  half  of  the  twentieth  century  and  will 
begin  to  have  survived  a  majority  of  it. 
Undoubtedly,  he's  extremely  impressed  with  this 
fact  and  will  go  on  about  it  for  just  about  the  entire 
two  hours  Perhaps  he'll  take  you  from  his  earliest 
memory,  watching  a  trolley  car  shower  sparks  from 
its  overhead  cables  onto  Ninth  Street  &  Seventh 
Avenue  in  cobblestone  covered  Park  Slope,  to  his 
latest  adventure,  looking  at  Ninth  Street  &  Seventh 
Avenue  in  Park  Slope  in  1997,  and  being  shocked  at 
how  the  old,  working  class  neighborhood  has  been 
gentrified.  Certainly,  he'll  ruminate  on  how  amazed 
he  is  to  be  about  to  turn  50  years  of  age  and  how,  in 
his  mind,  he  is  still  wondering  what  it  will  be  like 
when  he  becomes  a  teenager.

black,  white,  Latina,  Asian,  etc.,  hope  to  bring 
you  a  sampling  of  our  his/herstories.   We  hope  to 
present  an  analysis  and  a  taste  of  the  future.  We 
cover  politics,  health,  culture  and  sexuality.  We 
make  links  with  communities  that  suffer  from 
oppression  but  work  toward  transforming  society. 
Our  diversity  breaks  through  the  myths  that  we 


are  all  rich,  white  and  male  —  myths  the  conserv- 
ative, religious  right  uses  to  shatter  coalition 
building.  With  Marie  Becker,  Nicholas  Cimorelli,

Postpone  The  Launch  Of  Cassini  For  The  Safety  Of  A  Solar  Fuel  Cell  Redesign 
Put  An  End  To  The  Militarization  And  Nuclearization  Of  Space 

Dear  President  William  Jefferson  Clinton  June  20,  1997     T- 108  Days 

At  5:38  AM  EDT  on  Monday,  October  6,  1997,  from  launch  complex  #  40  at  the  Cape  Canaveral  Air 
Station,  a  spacecraft  called  Cassini  is  scheduled  to  liftoff.  On  board  Cassini  will  be  72.3  pounds  of  the 
deadliest  substance  known,  Plutonium  (Pu).  This  is  by  far  the  most  Pu  ever  attempted  to  be  launched 
in  a  space  mission.  Inhaling  less  than  27  millionths  of  a  gram  of  Pu  will  give  you  lung  cancer  and  also 
causes  long  tenri  genetic  damage.  NASA's  own  odds  now  state  there  is  a  1  in  345  probability  for  a 
release  of  Pu  on  this  mission.  NASA's  original  estimate  for  a  Pu  release  were  1  in  900,  then  it  was 
1  in  500,  now  it  is  1  in  345,  tomorrow  who  knows?  Remember  what  the  late  Noble  prize  winning 
physicist  Dr.  Richard  P.  Feynman,  a  member  of  the  Presidential  Commission  that  investigated  the 
1/28/86  Challenger  disaster  said:  "the  NASA  managers  exaggerated  the  reliability  of  the  Shuttle  to  the 
point  of  fantasy.  I  saw  considerable  flaws  in  their  logic.  I  found  that  they  were  making  up  numbers  not 
based  on  experience.  NASA's  engineering  judgment  was  not  the  judgment  of  its  engineers."  There 
are  2.3  million  people  in  the  6  county  region  surrounding  Cape  Canaveral.  If  there  is  a  failure  on  liftoff 
like  the  Challenger  did  at  T+  73  seconds  and  the  Pu  is  released,  the  prevailing  winds  in  October  are 
blowing  right  back  over  all  these  people.  Will  NASA  wait  for  the  perfect  wind  conditions,  away  from 
humans?  A  1  in  345  gamble  with  the  deadliest  substance  known  is  too  much,  especially  when  there 
are  a  dozen  more  nuclear  space  missions  scheduled  over  the  next  12  years.  Please,  Mr.  President, 
postpone  Cassini  so  it  can  be  redesigned  using  the  safe  renewable  alternative,  a  solar  fuel  cell  design 
to  generate  the  modest  745  watts  of  electricity  needed,  instead  of  gambling  with  potentially  deadly  Pu.
